Default Handheld OS 4.1 for Cingular 7290?

Please Login to Remove!

Is there a way to install handheld software 4.1 on the 7290 from Cingular? It is not on Cingular's software page. On that note, neither is BES 4.1.

What gives? Does that mean that Cingular doesn't want us upgrading yet?

Assuming that you have another carriers 4.1 OS for the 7290, then yes. You have to delete the Vendor.xml file from your computer for the install to work.

I am sure that Cingular will release their blessed version of 4.1 soon enough. Not surprised that they waited until after the RIM legal issues were settled.

I'm in no hurry, was just curious.

Thanks!
